Teacher Week: WHAT Friday! {FREEBIES}

Happy Friday everyone!

Today is the last link up for Teacher Week with Blog Hoppin’ and it’s WHAT Friday!



What do I like to teach? It’s hard to pick just one thing that I love to teach. I enjoy teaching my kiddos everything, but if I had to narrow it down I would say anything in English Language Arts. More specifically, I really enjoy teaching my students how to write. It’s so much fun to spark their interest and see their imaginations take off in the form of writing.

The most important part of teaching writing is making sure students understand the writing process. I created a writing center bulletin board with a “writing process pencil” where students could track their progress. You can download the FREE instructions and blackline masters to make your own pencil. Just click the picture.



I also really enjoy conferencing with students about their writing and teaching students how to “show and not tell” in their writing. I created this FREE “Show, Don’t Tell” sort for students to practice. I enjoy challenging my students to come up with more interesting ways to express their ideas.



Publishing student writing is also something I enjoy. I am always creating fun “writing craftivties” to display my students’ work.



One really awesome way I got my students engaged in the writing process was publishing their work with Student Treasures: a super awesome book making company. It’s completely FREE for teachers and students to create. If parents want a copy of the book, they just pay a low price for a copy of the class book. You even have the option to create digital books or individual books for students to “treasure” forever!








Finally, check out these FREE Common Core Writing Resources from my TpT store! Use these to help your students write and meet the Common Core State Standards!



I really enjoyed linking up this week with Blog Hoppin’. Hop on over to link up and read other amazing bloggers’ posts!




Have a beautiful weekend!
